Proud and Hooray

Dear all. I have two cards for you today, so I hope you will bear with me.



Two completely different cards, but I had fun creating the both of them.

The first card is using the Altenew ‘Ornamental Flower‘ again – sorry, but I really, really, like this flower – and created for several challenges. I used an old embossing folder from Tattered Lace for the dotty background, and a Sue Wilson die for the oval. The sentiment is from an Altenew stamp set, and I used this sentiment as I will giving this card to a colleague in the next few days for passing a qualification.

The second card is using the colours from Color Throwdown, and using the stamps, dies and sentiment from the newest Catherine Pooler ‘Stamp Of Approval‘. I picked it up yesterday, and just had to play!

I shall be entering the first card into the following challenges:

Always Fun Challenges – flowers

Freshly Made Sketches – sketch

Watercooler Challenges – anything goes feminine

Just Add Ink – add an ‘O’ (Oval)

The second card will be entered into the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps and More – balloons/bunting/presents

Color Throwdown – Coral, green, Kraft, White

Seize The Birthday – anything goes birthday

QKR Stampede – anything goes

  3. What wonderful cards, Linda! I love them both but the first is my favourite. I’m glad you chose to enter it into our challenge. Such a wonderful flower! No wonder you keep going back to use it. Some images just beg to be used over and over. The colours are so beautifully vivid. I love the way your die-cut flower is showcased against the stitched oval and background embossing. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
